Nice sized fast food menu. Fresh, tasty and cooked to order. You can never go wrong here. They are the premier chip fryer in this part of the world. take home a large bag of fresh chips. Like I said always good no matter what you order.

This place always seems to be busy, and it's for a reason. Just across the 1 from the beach. Good food and atmosphere. Go back when I can.

This was the best Mexican food in Capistrano in the 70's but now not so much. High priced tourist fare.

Chile relleno burritos are the best. We normally go to the one in Mission Viejo but I bet they are all the same.

Each of the Las Golondrinas take-out locations have excellent breakfast burritos with several choices to add to the burrito. Their tamales are also very good as are their chips and salsa. Good for a quick breakfast or lunch if you don't mind sitting at one of the outside tables generally facing a parking lot.
